- 8/1/2017

Mrs Janet Bowen, Lord-Lieutenant for Ross and Cromarty, Skye and Lochalsh attended a service of National Thanksgiving for the 90th Birthday of the Queen at St Paul's Cathedral on Friday 10 June.

The service was attended by many Royal Family members, including the Duke of Edinburgh - on his own 95th birthday.

At the service, which was attended by more than 2,000 people, Prime Minister David Cameron read a passage from the Bible.

And broadcaster Sir David Attenborough read a piece written by Michael Bond, author of the Paddington Bear books, on "the passing of the years". Both men also turned 90 this year.

Guests included senior politicians, faith leaders and hundreds of members of the public nominated by government departments to recognise their service.
